Just about to replace/refurbish my OEM strut brace as it's rusting a little at both ends.

I've noticed the bolts don't look great either.

Does anyone have the part number for replacements and/or suggestions for a nicer looking/better quality alternative?

Thanks!

Judging by the info on catcar the bolts are not available separately, I may be wrong though but it doesn鈥檛 give you an option for bolts in the parts list, only the strut bar/brace is showing part number in grey 馃憤

hold that thought they may be the HN2 numbered nut in the diagram

I'm after the three that go in where it says 11008 do you think that's the same one?
they could well be 11008 is the strut brace/bar


Think they're bolts rather than nuts. Three on each side.
after looking at an under bonnet shot of my car they do look like bolts and not nuts, if no bolts are shown it usually means that the bolts will come with the bar and not sold separately.

using the tailgate handle as an example, the fitting bolts 4 or 5 of them-are not a separate part and come with the handle at a cost of over 拢200 馃槱

I think the bolts that go through the strut at the end (3 each side, 11008 in the pic) are the shock top bolts, RS specific.

Up to 4/6/2009 is m8x30mm 1382652

From 4/6/2009 m8x36mm 1633911

(y)Part number is 1382652 拢1.67 each from Ford.

Actually Gareth is also right with the later cars but the price difference is amazing! The 1633911 are 拢8.69 each! Looks like the only difference is they are 6mm longer?

What doesnt make any sense is both have the same strut brace and top mounts so why change the bolt size?

So no harm using the slightly shorter bolts on my 2010 then? That's quite a difference in price! 馃し鈥嶁檪锔忦煠
